For Blink?

Not shocked, I guess. But with 20k+ people at each date, you'd think it would be hard to outgrow Warped.

Anyone know how much a band on Warped makes? Obviously it depends on the stage, but any ideas?

For Kevin. Blink's guarantee is astronomical and far above anything Kevin could afford to pay them without significantly raising the ticket price.

you know that they're no longer a band, right?

I don't listen to them, so I didn't know. So replace some power pop/pop punk band with around the same popularity as them for that slot.

Any shot at Blink 182 being on the tour?


Asterisks are the ones I'd really like

Also, wishlist:
****Sparks the Rescue**** (It might be hard to get on a stage label-free, though)
**Bowling for Soup** (Yes, they still exist)
Sum 41
A Day to Remember
**Danger is My Middle Name** (IDK if they still exist)
Dropout Year
Assemble the Skyline
Artist vs Poet
This Wild Life
Dear You
**Red Jumpsuit Apparatus** (IDK why these guys get so much hate)
TSSF

Bands I'd like to return from this year:
****Bayside****
Mayday
**I Fight Dragons**
Phone Calls From Home
**Patent Pending**
Junior Doctor
I Call Fives
C!N,CC

Awesome to see someone mention DIMMN. Sadly, they did break up.

Thats prolly a pretty good guess. The only thing I would say is I think Attila, Forever The Sickest Kids, and Norma Jean would all get mainstage slots if they got on. But yeah this is pretty good line up to lol.

I have no idea about Attila or ftsk, but I think Norma Jean could be this years ETID.

lets put it this way Taking Back Sunday took a significant pay cut to be a part of the tour this year. Not compare where they are and where Blink is. Blink plays warped venues and bigger ones on their own.

I used to go to all their shows before they abruptedly broke up.

I think multiple guys were sleeping with the same girl and that lead to the breakup.

Updated... Only bands I added to the Rumored section were The Wonder Years (because they pretty much sound like a sure thing for next Summer) and Structures (Since they've tweeted about playing).

The thing about TWY is I think they're too big for Tilly's now, but not so sure if they're big enough for Mainstage. They'd be perfect size for Monster I think, but not sure if they'd fit in well.

I definitely see them as a Monster band. I feel like people who say they're mainstage worthy are overestimating their popularity. However, with a new album, (that is well received) they could easily make the jump IMO, so by the time warped rolls around, they may be a perfect fit for main.

I honestly think they're a mainstage band, and I'm not saying that because of the fact I like their music or any real bias. I went to multiple Warped Tour dates this summer, guess what band shirt everyone was wearing, The Wonder Years. Admittedly I live on the east coast so it could be different out west but Kevin Lyman has stated multiple times when judging bands for Warped he looks at what the kids are wearing to figure out what will be big come next summer. If they had played this year I imagine they probably would have been a Monster band that would have gotten the bump multiple times to the main stage.

Dude, I agree on the shirt thing, it seems like every kid I saw at my date was either wearing a wonder years shirt or a for all those sleeping shirt
